Game of Thrones creators Damon Lindelof and Amy Sherman-Palladino tell EW their new HBO drama The Last of Weeds, which is set to premiere on Friday, will feature an “unapologetically dark” ending.
“I don’t think the ending is necessarily what fans want,” Lindeloff told EW.
“I think what we wanted to do was have a really dark ending that was so dark, that I think is a really powerful statement.
I think we want it to be that dark.””
The Last” stars Olivia Colman as a young woman who must choose between the safety of her family and the safety, safety, of her friend and lover, Joel, who was killed in a car crash.
The two share a relationship that ultimately ends in violence.
In the pilot, The Last will focus on the “most dangerous time in the human race,” the events of which are the culmination of a long-standing feud between The North and The South.
The North is led by the tyrannical Lord Joanna Mormont, while the South is led as The South is ruled by the despotic General Mormond.
“We want it [the finale] to be an emotional journey that goes to a place that is very hard to understand, and I think that’s where people are going to be surprised by the ending,” Lindelloff said.
“It’s really dark, and it’s very difficult to understand.
So it’s going to bring something very dark to people.”
